BANDUNG - West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil asked the State Civil Apparatus (ASN), to behave like water. The water flows in shape. As is the case with the current development (industrial revolution 4.0) which is characterized by the development of information technology, so ASN must also be literate and adapt to technological changes.
Emil, his nickname, said this when opening the "Shifting Bureaucracy" Seminar which presented Rhenald Kasali as a speaker at the Gedung Sate West Hall on Wednesday (10/24/18).
So over time, Emil said the West Java Provincial Government will make a change in mindset where ASN are encouraged to be able to innovate, collaborate and decentralize. So that makes it easier for ASN to interact with the community through technological advances in improving service.
"With a concept like this, service will be smoother, people don't have to go to government offices," he said.
According to Emil, the three main keys to ASN to do shifting are integrity, service with the heart, and professionals.
The author of the book "The Great Shifting" who is also Professor of the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Indonesia, Rhenald Kasali at the end of his presentation gave tips on how ASN can follow the times. First, change the mindset. Second, try everything for paperless and information technology-based. "That will reduce time, save money and reduce mistakes," he said.
Third, according to Rhenald is with deregulation. "Reduce the issuance of regulations. Make the community understand and protect them to carry out the principles of community," he said. No less important for bureaucrats to do is to simplify the SOP.
"Fourth, give space for the ASN to innovate," he said.
On this occasion, Ridwan handed over Educational Research Assistance to Recipients of Educational Research Assistance at the Bachelor level and received the Results of the 300 Doctoral Program Research Implementation in West Java Province.
